Lymphocyterich Hodgkins lymphoma

This subtype comprises only 5% of classical HL, and again is seen most frequently in older males. Similar to MC HL, LR HL is pathologically characterized by Hodgkin's or Reed-Sternberg cells surrounded by an inflammatory infiltrate; however, these cells are primarily small lymphocytes with a notable absence of neutrophils and eosinophils.13 Most patients present with early-stage disease, in general with peripheral node involvement. Mediastinal involvement and B symptoms are uncommon.13
